Advances in rehabilitation science including the quantification of movement disorders and clinical outcomes.COURSE DESCRIPTION New Directions for Understanding Whiplash- Have We BeenDriving in the Wrong Lane?It is necessary to gain an insight into the mechanisms underlying the pain, physical andpsychological impairments for the differential diagnosis and appropriate management of apatient’s neck pain and disability following whiplash injury. This course will present theresearch findings from the Neuromuscular Imaging Research Laboratory at NorthwesternUniversity, Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences and the newdirections that are emanating from recent and ongoing basic science and clinical research efforts.This research is looking into the assessment, accurate sub-group classification and managementof patients with neck pain; key areas being the mechanistic basis for pain, physical andpsychological impairment in the musculoskeletal system in cases of traumatic whiplash. Severalmeasurements have been developed towards quantifying/classifying impairments in the pain,
sensory-motor, postural control and sympathetic nervous systems as well as psychosocialfeatures of neck-related disorders. The course will also explore innovative management optionsfor mediating the expression of pain in both whiplash and other common neuromusculoskeletalconditions.COURSE DESCRIPTION Evidence-Based Solutions for Improving Cervical Spine Healthand FunctionThis two day course will provide participants with the latest multidisciplinary research intocervical spine disorders emanating from a distinguished international panel of basic science andclinician researchers. The emphasis in this course is placed on the application of translationalresearch to leading edge clinical practice. The format will consist of lectures, panel discussionsand question and answer. Specific topics include subgrouping patients with neck pain,measuring the experience of pain, and psychosocial factors, exercise prescription and medicalmanagement in neck pain.WHO SHOULD ATTENDPhysical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Physiatrists, Orthopedic/NeurologicalSurgeons, Family Practice/Internists, Emergency Medicine Physicians, Physician Assistants,Residents, Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Athletic Trainers,Nurses, Chiropractors, and individuals treating or researching cervical spine pain.COURSE OBJECTIVESUpon completion of the New Directions for Understanding Whiplash course, participants will beable to:Provide an overview of soft tissue injury associated with whiplash-associated disorderCharacterize the primary prognostic and diagnostic factors related to Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD)Identify the primary clinical and radiographic findings that determine best management decisions for WADIntegrate current best evidence into effective assessment, sub-group classification and management of the patient with acute and chronic WAD as well as other frequently encountered neuromusculoskeletal conditions.Upon completion of the Evidence-Based Solutions for Improving Cervical Spine Health andFunction course, participants will be able to:Discuss the relevant biomechanics of the cervical spine in injury prevention and mechanisms underlying the genesis and maintenance of pain.Review risk factors that could influence the maintenance and recurrence of neck pain.Devise an informed assessment, characterization and subsequent management strategy for the patient with neck pain.Integrate the influence of health care services and the economic impact of multidisciplinary
services for the patient with neck pain.Discuss the influence of subgrouping in the patient with cervical spine and upper limb pathology.Review patient education and counseling schemas for the patient with neck spine pain.COURSE CHAIRSEllen Casey, MDAssistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Northwestern University, FeinbergSchool of Medicine.
